's candidate and he promised to implement islamic law. but analysts say that he's not really a true religious fundamentalist. that he had to adopt those positions to fend off competition from islamist extremists. and his background does seem to suggest that he may be more of a moderate. at least he spent eight years in the united states. he's earned a ph.d. in engineering from usc before he joined the faculty at cal state university north ridge. in fact, two of his five children were actually born during that time and those kids are u.s. citizens. but his links to this country certainly are going to be put to the test tomorrow when secretary of state hillary clinton joins the peace talks. she actually landed in tel aviv tonight and she offered strong praise for the egyptian president. >> we appreciate president morsi's personal leadership and egypt's efforts thus far. as a regional leader and neighbor, egypt has the opportunity and responsibility to continue playing a crucial and constructive role in this process.

. the auto industry is more bullish than that but who knows. if you look at more is -- moore's law which talks about how quickly technology advances, it doubles essentially in its space and density every maybe two years every 18 months, that would suggest that if you've got the scale and you're producing a lot of them, that it could come down much more quickly than ten years. that's what i would say. do you agree? >> the catch is that batteries don't -- they do increase every year by about 7% capacity. the price is going down quickly. substantially. it's not exactly like computer chips. that's why batteries are such a difficult problem. for more than a century. and it's taken this long for technology to get to the place where electric cars could be as good as they are now. i think they're finally -- cars that you know, will meet american needs. they will love them if they can get in them and drive them. >> jennifer: seth, i agree with you. i think that they will totally love them if they get in them and try them. i have
